Bicycling out when SHTF – Weathering the Chaos and Destruction

huffy-bicycleMost people own a bicycle whether it’s a street bike or mountain bike it’s a great means of getting to safety in a quick and convenient manner when the highways and roads are bumper to bumper with cars and trucks.

There are numerous add-ons you can get for your bicycle that can easily hold enough gear to keep you traveling for a week both food and water.


On a bicycle you are unencumbered by traffic or impassable routes you can go through yards and down trails where cars cannot go.


An average bicyclist can travel at about 10-15 miles per hour and can navigate a moderate riding pace for about 3-hours (30 – 45 miles).

    Thank you, Carol. There are so many of us who slumbered for way too long. Trusting those we thhugot had America’s best interest at heart only to be jolted awake one day to find out they were nothing but a bunch of corrupt N’er-Do-Wells. I’m concerned for those who *only* prep to the extent of storing food. But it IS a start and I’m thankful those who are awake and are doing it. Depending on just how bad things get, it may buy some time and let others with experience in Food Production come in to help alleviate some of the stresses so they, too, can be providers for their families. While we are only in our second season of growing, we have been dedicated to learning what plagues us, from foul weather to pests, diseases and critters but also what actually works for us in our extreme climate. We are also storing a healthy supply of seeds so we can help our friends and neighbors if the need arises as well as some basics of extra food storage. But we are not foolish. If things reach a certain point, my husband and I will leave this neighborhood and hunker down at my parents house and their small piece of land where we can take our storage and our knowledge, rebuild the garden and take advantage of a few other natural resources that are available. Luckily for us, there is little between our place and theirs except a mostly empty road. Not too far away, but far away enough to provide a bit of seclusion and privacy from the hoodlums that may be ravaging the neighborhoods and city folk. Luckily for us, my folks live South. If they lived North, we’d have a hard time getting out of Dodge and things could get ugly. I’m honored I inspired you. I very much appreciate your stories, thhugots and insights. I’m looking forward to your newest post.
